Carl T. Bergstrom is a professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington in Seattle and a member of the external faculty at the Santa Fe Institute. Dr. Bergstrom's research uses mathematical, computational, and statistical models to understand how information flows through biological and social systems. His recent projects include contributions to the game theory of communication and deception, applications of information theory to the study of evolution by natural selection, development of mathematical techniques for mapping and comprehending large network datasets, and a number of more applied studies in disease evolution, including analysis of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in hospital settings and models of the interaction between the ecology and evolution in novel emerging pathogens such as those causing SARS and H5N1 avian influenza. At the University of Washington, Dr. Bergstrom teaches undergraduate courses on evolutionary biology and on the applications of evolutionary biology to medical problems.
